Zherdev/Callahan File for Arbitration

July 5, 2009, by

In relatively unsurprising (and surprising) news, Nik Zherdev (unsurprisingly) and Ryan Callahan (surprisingly) have filed for salary arbirtration. It’s unsurprising for Zherdev because I assumed that $3.25 million was going to be too little in his eyes. I assume he will get $3.75-$4 million.

As for Callahan, this is only surprising because I thought that Sather would be negotiating more with the Callahan camp, but apparently Sather still just low-balls everyone who is an RFA.

It’s just part of the process for RFAs, if you remember, Avery went through the same deal a couple seasons ago. It is what it is.
